Many thanks for all the information provided.
Checkek out EcoPark in Rajarhat/New Town. So there are 36 PokeStops there and 3 Gyms. Open greenery and a huge water body. Sounds fantastic, does it not?
However, to collect and fill your bag with poke stop goodies, this is an excellent idea.
As for pokemons, in the 2 hours that I spent there, I found 2 pokemons, and another 6 when some one activated a lure module on a pokestop.
Not the best outcome I suppose. Out of those 8 pokemons, none of the were new finds, rather the samy typical spawns for Rattata, Pidgey, and Zubat.
I mean bloody hell, how does a place with 36 pokestops and 3 gyms in a 3 km long stretch not have anything nice. May be something was wrong with the server, hence the ridiculous spawns.
From Salt Lake, if you take the bridge behind Baisakhi Mall, to Kestopur, you will find alot of pokemons. Good ones too. Some one previpously informed of Kestopur and it turned out to be great. In a span of 1 hour 30 minutes i collected more than 30 pokemons and to add to that 8 new pokemons. Not bad i guess.
Another nice place is the Metropolitan Township which is on the way to Salt Lake. It the the High Way Dhabba road. The good thing about this place is that it has big less traffic and alot of pokemons as well.I did collect some 50 pokemons here in about 2 hours. However there are no pokestops or gyms here. (unless I forgot).
As far as Salt Lake goes, this place is a gold mine, especially City Centre. YOu might not get the rarest of pokemons, but you do come accross a pokemon every 2 to 3 minutes.
Central park in Salt Lake is also helpfull as it has 6 poke stops in less than 100 metres. By the time i left my house in Salt Lake and entered city centre Kolkata (Park Circus), the servers had been geo blocked. Cannot comment on locations around the rest of Kolkata.
People, please understand that using a lure module, when people are around does not decrease your chance of getting more pokemons. The more the number of people around a lure module, the higher the chances of of a rarer pokemon appearing. Hence please dont be selfish. This game is not about being the best, but rather teaming with people. Best to use lure modules around alot of people.
Another thing about the lure module is that, if I am level 12 and the person who used the lure module is of a lower level than me, I will see only the same level of pokemons as the lure module activator does. Hence the people with the highest levels should use lure modules, as it attracts pokemons at par or higher than their level.
I guess this is all I can think of as of now.
Lets help people with more insights.
People please be safe, as we all know how traffic in Kolkata is.
